Ghostbot : Some of the work I do there!

  •   Lucas Art : Check out the Holiday card we did at Ghostbot for Lucas Art! I had the chance to animate it along with the talented Sam Chi. Roque Ballesteros directed it. See the full animation here : http://holidaycard.starwars.com/

  •   Drake VS Lil Wayne Show : I drew some of the art that were displayed on stage for the touring show of Drake VS Lil Wayne. My black & white layouts were then painted by grooving artists. And the best part was to eventually see them on huge screens on stage during the show. I got to draw a lot of bad boys/ girls, muscles, hands and butts. I felt in my comfort zone ( ^..^).  Here's a small glimpse :
   
 

  •     Pharrel Williams : We worked on a proof-of-concept test to show what Pharrell + Ghostbot would look like. Pharrel was a wonderful client to work for.  I got to do some of the Story Board, Character Designs, Layouts and Animations! Bellow are a few samples :






Storyboard poses :







  • Personal Practice after work: My awesome friend Jeremy Polgar taught me how to do gifs! By the way, you guys should go see his work online, Jeremy Polgar is SUPER DUPER talented. I'm a big fan of his work. See for yourself  : http://jpolgar1.tumblr.com/                    And his reel : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDrj3Wf3npc.                                             So the gif bellow is an example of the sort of personal animation I adore doing inbetween work : 



  • Mugsy and Biscuit - Facebook Stickers : I worked onto some fun stickers for Facebook over at Ghostbot. Alan Lau was my director on it and of course a huge help and endless source of inspiration! Alan created the original design of Biscuit (the corgi) and I drew/ animated the poses you can see below. The original design of Mugsy (the frenchie) was done by me and I then drew & animated the followings stickers. Enjoy and go use them on Facebook!!!:


      And bellow are some of the still stickers I did. I also included
some roughs that didn't make it on Facebook : 




  • The Ever Changing Commuter : I commute 4 hours a day to go to Ghostbot so I draw A LOT of people. While flipping through the pages of my sketchbook, I got the idea to just animate a couple of those faces together. So here's the little animated methamorphose practice: 


  • Sly Cooper - Cut Scenes & Commercials : Bellow is a break down of a few shots I animated on the marketing video "Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time". I have worked on this project a little longer than a year and had a blast! Natasha Brown and Kris Toscanini helped me coloring and symbolizing some of these poses that I drew in Flash. (yay team work!!) And of course my 3 directors Roque Ballesteros, Alan Lau and Brad Rau are always a huge help, they are teaching me so much every single day. I am the luckiest drawer/ animator on earth with these guys!

Exercising some more volume, anatomy and movements ; my three passions in life ^^


  • Anatomy Animation : When I have free time, I love to animate anatomy! Anatomy to me is the best way to learn about volume  and movement. And holly cow, I have A LOT to learn about these two issues!

Imagination Sketches


  • Sketch Book Pages : Here's a few sketch book pages that I worked in Photoshop for fun. By the way, I usually put raw sketch book images in here : http://tatyanadrewrycarvin.blogspot.com/  Go check it out! Lately, I'm having a blast working on combining anatomical shapes .... I may look like a creep because I just draw anatomy all the time... but it's truly the best way for me to learn about shape language and volume.... 




  • Anatomy warm up : Before I start work,  I like to do some warm up sketching in flash. Here is a small glimpse : 





  • Me and Jérémie working hard onto some animations ;) We each have a very different way to work :






Drawings for friends : A few drawings I did for people I love:












                                                                         
Jérémie and I won a price for the Metro Contest in L.A thanks to that drawing. For a while, this drawing was shown on the screens of every bus running in the city. The theme of the contest was "corruption" :
   

Trying some pastel my german aunt sent me :



Here's a sample of a comic book that Jérémie and I have been working on. Based on one of his script :



.Anatomy and watercolor!! Two of my favorite things ever :


And some imagination drawings I did when I was still living in France :
